And What Character Socks to Take With You

With the school holidays well underway, it is sometimes difficult to keep kids busy and stop them from being bored on the sofa! It is a big wide world out there with lots of things to see and do, so we have suggested our favourite free and paid day out experiences that will be perfect to keep your kids entertained for the rest of the summer holidays.


The National Gallery Museum

A fantastic free entry day out in the heart of London!

Located in Trafalgar Square with great connections to both train and tube, The National Gallery is Britain’s greatest hub for art. Whether you are an art lover or not, we are sure you will be blown away by what the Gallery has to offer. Seeing paintings from the likes of Monet and Vincent Van Gogh make this day out a truly unforgettable one.

In the hustle and bustle of Trafalgar Square, there are many great restaurants to choose from for a spot of lunch, and the magnificent water fountains make this spot one of London’s very best.

We were that inspired, we decided to team up with them to re-create some of their famous pieces on socks! We have also made them available framed for those who want to put them on their wall.

As with anything in London, the museum has great connections via London Underground and is walking distance from other well-known locations like Harrods, Hyde Park and Kensington Palace.
